Restriction on Wickliffe-Cairo Bridge Through June
By WestKyStar Staff
WICKLIFFE, KY - A contractor for the Kentucky Transportation Cabinet plans to restrict traffic to one lane on the US 51/US 60/US 62 Ohio River Bridge between Wickliffe, KY, and Cairo, IL, during daylight hours.
This restriction is to allow maintenance and electrical work on the bridge. Motorists can expect to encounter one lane traffic with alternating flow controlled by flaggers from approximately 7:00 am to approximately 5:00 pm Monday through Thursday of each week through about June 28th.
Motorists should be alert for equipment, flaggers, and maintenance personnel on the bridge deck in close proximity to traffic flow. Delays should be minimal, generally less than about 5 minutes.
Farmers who need to move oversize equipment across the bridge or truckers hauling wide loads should contact the KYTC Paducah office at 270-898-2431 during normal business hours to make special arrangements to travel through this work zone. The contractor will attempt to accommodate oversize loads in a timely manner.
